11 in battleship Gneisenau with her bows blown off by RAF bombing, February 1942. She was in dry dock for repairs to mine damage incurred during the 'Channel Dash' earlier that month. Plans to replace her 9 x 11 in guns with 6 x 15 in came to nothing: she never returned to service, and was towed into position and scuttled as a block ship to deny Gotenhafen (now Gdynia) to the advancing Soviets in March 1945. She was broken up in situ in 1951.
